wikileaks, which is aiding edward snowden in his move, sort of, around the country, why has wickdy leaks chosen to essentially defy u.s. law to help mr. snoweden? >> let's make it clear first that in my mind mr. snowden is not a fugitive. he is an asylum seeker. he has a right in accordance with international law to seek an asylum and he should be protected in that process. and that's where wikileaks came in. we gave him assistance through our legal team that has for obvious reasons good expertise in extradition laws and international treaties and angles pertaining to that. secondly, we were acting as go-betweens between his legal team and mr. snowden and governments and officials when he was seeking asylum. >> there are extradition treaties, for instance between the united states and hong kong. right? there were legal sort of extradition treaties in place when he was in hong kong. how early in the process did wikileaks become involved? if they helped him leave hong kong and evade the treaties that allow hong kong to send him back here, that's still intervening in legal extradition to th
